The Stage 2 CorkSport 13” Big Brake Kit for Mazdaspeed 6
Improves upon each component in the front braking system to provide a drastic increase in braking performance. From the larger and thicker 13” rotors to the stainless steel brake lines, each component was specifically chosen to help you stop better.
Everything you need to install the kit is included, even down to brackets to secure your new stainless brake lines. If you’re making big power and/or just want something more than the CS Big Brake Caliper kit, the CorkSport Stage 2 13” BBK is for you. Check out the full details below.

The CorkSport Advantage
All components in this kit were chosen for their positive impact to one or more of the three characteristics that define braking performance: heat, weight, and force. Each component is an improvement on its own, but together they truly combine to offer drastically improved braking performance for your MS6. These brakes make slowing down after a WOT pull almost as much fun as the pull itself!
Lots of thought has gone into making the 13” (330mm) brake rotors perform the best they can for both street and track use. Aside from looking great, the larger diameter allows for a larger braking torque from the same braking force (like how a longer wrench makes it easier to loosen a bolt).
The larger diameter coupled with an upgrade to 28mm thick also means there is more mass to reject heat into, keeping your brakes from overheating longer. Heat is also easier to dissipate due to directional vanes in the rotor rings. These help to suck extra air through the rotors for better cooling. The CorkSport 13” rotors use a two-piece design with an aluminum rotor hat for weight savings and again better cooling. Finally, they are directionally slotted to help sweep dirt, gases, brake dust, and other debris away from the rotor/pad interface to keep your braking characteristics consistent.
The forged aluminum calipers included with the Stage 2 CorkSport BBK are 4 piston units that are even larger than the CorkSport Big Brake Caliper Kit. While each piston is smaller than the large single piston OE caliper, the total surface area is larger, providing more braking force from the same amount of braking pressure. There are a few other advantages by using two pistons on each side of the caliper: maximized pad size and even braking pressure on each side of the rotor.
Even pad wear is further encouraged by having staggered piston sizes. Another consideration was heat – we made the pistons out of stainless steel due to its lower conductive heat transfer than aluminum or regular steel. Fancy vocab aside, this means less heat going into your brake fluid, keeping you out on the track longer.
Hardware, Brackets, and Lines
The CorkSport 13” BBK includes larger and more aggressive brake pads to go with the improved calipers and rotors. They fill the gap nicely between a street pad and a full-blown track pad, so you have good performance cold, and even better performance when warm while not having to worry about a ton of noise or dust when on the street. When it comes time to replace pads, don’t worry, the CS brake pads are a common size so you’ll have plenty of options to choose from.
Performance Brake Pads
But wait there’s more! Along with the large component improvements, each CorkSport Stage 2 13” BBK comes with upgraded lines, brackets, and hardware. High strength billet steel caliper brackets hold everything in the correct location while braided stainless steel brake lines keep your pedal firm at all times. Hardware is all corrosion resistant grade 12.9 bolt to make sure your brakes aren’t going anywhere. The use of a wheel spacer is required for OE wheels and some aftermarket wheels.
